    borrow good DIS?

    Thanks KMT I have three DIS's. One new $60 for the up to 1990, and one new $200 1991-92. I am getting 212 and 214 on one of them and just 214 on the other. I have new cam and crank sensors. I thought it was the wiring, but it was a bad connection on a lead to the ohm meter!!! I have the...

    borrow good DIS?

    Hi Does anyone have a known good DIS they can loan me? I have three DIS modules and none of them will start my 1991 SC. If anyone in the N Bay Area has a known good one to loan me, I would sure appreciate it. Thank you. Jason

    JBL premium sound - Contour cd player wiring help

    I soldered in that MOSFET. The amp worked! For about a minute, then cut out, now nothing. So shoot. Anyone have a working amp they want to sell?

    On my last nerve - more SC troubleshooting

    Solvent spill... There is foam all around the condenser between the rad and condenser. That could be a big sponge and soak stuff up. But acetone... Acetone will evaporate and be gone quickly. Even in a sponge it will not hang around. What is this mystery substance? What about let a tiny...

    On my last nerve - more SC troubleshooting

    This is odd. If you take off the radiator cap (engine cold of course), and smell the coolant, is that the same smell? You said it, "Smelled EXACTLY like paint thinner or nail polish remover." My coolant does not smell like that. Good luck.

    JBL premium sound - Contour cd player wiring help

    Thank you for offering to take a look for me. I did make that sound like I had no idea. With no doubt it is an IRFZ40, 50Volts / 50Amps N-Channel MOSFET. I linked that video because it is funny if you watch to the END.

    JBL premium sound - Contour cd player wiring help

    Thank you for the link to that thread. A lot of good (and probably some bad) information there. I need to check all the speakers, grounds, and power supply lines next. UGH. The JY charges $40 for an amp. the eBay charges $50 for a NOS amp. It hurts to pay anyone $50 for anything. So I...

    JBL premium sound - Contour cd player wiring help

    I wired up each radio to my guitar amp and they both work. Cool. Then I hooked up the radio to the stock amp to an old speaker. I get intermittent sound. It will play for a second or two and then cut out until I turn the radio off and back on. So looks like back to the junk yard I go...

    Help to remove center console 91 auto

    The leather was from our old couch. I saved all the leather. I have repaired baseball gloves, other baseball gloves, and this. That's like 1/500th of a couch.

    Help to remove center console 91 auto

    Thank you, KMT. Looks like in the 91 there are three clips. Only one clip was connected. The one in the front on the right. I held down the bottom part while I pulled up on the top part of the console and it popped out. Then removing it was as you said. Then I glued the leather brake...

    Help to remove center console 91 auto

    Hi I am trying to remove the front upper part of the center console, not the armrest part. I have covered a small plastic piece with leather and want to install it on the underside of the console around the brake handle. I have removed the three screws just under the armrest. I can move the...

    blue cloth lx interior Nor Cal

    There is a nearly perfect light blue cloth interior from an lx or something. Not an SC, anyway, no side bolsters. At the Pick and Pull in Windsor CA. North SF Bay Area. The seats are better than mine, and mine have only 70k miles on them, but I am keeping my leather SC seats. Still, I hate...

    JBL premium sound - Contour cd player wiring help

    Thanks KMT Sounds like you went through it with yours. I was hoping to plug and play, or nearly so. I don't want all those new fangled gadgets. I'm a grumpy old man. JBL is making me grumpier. I will probably go grab the amp out of the Contour and see if that will fit with the sub woofer...
